Remapping does that, doesn't it? As in, if it was on its way to breaking, then it's definitely going to break now!

I still miss my 9000 Aero stage 2+ Jules edition.
1.4 bar in every gear. The Red Beast was a freaking awesome car.

... I still have a copy of that map on a spare ECU, I may consider refitting it if/when I replace the clutch as the one currently on the car slips a bit too easily with that map :twisted:

All sorted now, was the exhaust manifold gasket, my helper when i was putting together the car hadnt tightened down the manifold enough so blasted a hole through the gasket, but had a spare in the garage so all good now. Met my friend on my way home as he couldnt get a garden table he had bought into the back of his 2017 audi s3, needless to say it went straight into the back of the saab then on the way home found out that my car is now just as fast as an s3, top end the s3 just has the legs on it though

Would be good to do a comparison of a stage 2+ lovie tune alongside the jules one, back in the day norman was the jules of the forum, but never tried a lovie map so cant comment

It was awesome. TD04-15T and standard Red injectors maxxed out as far as they will go. Using stock MAP sensor.
Just need big downpipe, big Zorst. And as unrestricted as you can make the intake. (take the snorkel off) It should be tapping on 300bhp.
Was way more wild than my Maptun 275bhp tune. And yet Jules's map will still do 40mpg on relaxed motorway driving.

FYI: I never used to stamp on the power with that tune. i.e in 3rd or 4th i would gradually apply full power. As the boost curve is just brutal. I have some videos of in gear pulls. 70 to 100 in 3rd without changing is 3.5 seconds. Thats Audi R8 fast !.
